TransModeler Traffic Simulation Software

Caliper is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of TransModeler 6.0, the most effective traffic simulation software available. TransModeler 6.0 takes significant strides in advancing Caliper’s mission to make traffic microsimulation more accurate, more affordable, and more scalable. Complex or time-consuming tasks are easier to accomplish in TransModeler 6.0 with an array of built-in tools, making it the most user-friendly simulation software package available.

TransModeler 6.0 achieves dramatic reductions in model running times, provides significant upgrades to its traffic flow models and driver behavior algorithms, and comes with an improved route choice and path management architecture. Mesoscopic and microscopic simulation and dynamic traffic assignment (DTA) are now more cost-effective than ever before.

TransModeler 6.0 better captures US vehicle fleets and driving behaviors out of the box without compromising the ability to adjust settings to model traffic conditions anywhere in the world.

TransModeler 6 reduces model development and calibration costs by:

Automatically identifying horizontal curves and calculating radii of curvature for road segments with multiple curves and accurately simulating deceleration and acceleration as drivers traverse them

Simulating complex driver interactions in merging and weaving areas better than ever before, overcoming many of the challenges of traditionally decoupled acceleration and lane changing algorithms

 
Driver behavior options

Adding new car following models for researchers and for connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) simulation, including the Intelligent Driver Model

Importing turn movement data from Excel to TransModeler

Importing turning movement counts directly from spreadsheets

Calculating future-year trip matrices by pivoting base year trip matrices to forecast link volumes

Equipping you with new and improved road editing tools, including the ability to merge one-way streets into two-way streets with just two clicks

TransModeler 6 introduces new tools for evaluating projects and analyzing alternatives that allow you to:

  • Manage your project alternatives and scenarios more easily with new options for copying projects and project input files
  • Extend your capacity analysis in McTrans’ HCS to microsimulation through deeper integration with HCS for freeway facilities, all-way stop-controlled intersections (AWSC), and two-way stop-controlled intersections (TWSC)
  • Model site impacts using built-in traffic impact analysis tools updated with trip generation rates and methods from the 10th Edition of the ITE Trip Generation Manual
  • Add new performance measures to your analyses, including average phase duration at actuated signalized intersections

Operational planning analysis has never been easier or more accessible with new features enabling:

Multi-day simulation

Simulation of multi-day periods or periods spanning midnight for evacuation, reliability, and other advanced planning analyses

More robust import of centroids and centroid connectors from planning models using TAZ boundaries and planning network topology

Support for activity-based model (ABM) trip lists from a wide variety of ABMs directly, preserving trip chain and activity schedules

Applications of TransModeler are facilitated by industry-leading technical support, a growing library of simulation-ready lane-level maps of key road facilities available at no additional cost, and expert consulting and research services.
